A Fateful Trip, Indeed

Headline: Gilligan Island's Dawn Wells arrested

A surprise birthday for actor Dawn Wells, best known as Mary Ann on Gilligan's Island, ended with the actor being caught with marijuana in her car driving home.

Looks like the Skipper wasn't the only one who had a little bud on that island.
I guess they'll have to change her character's name from Mary Ann to Mary Jane from now on. Which could explain the raging appetite for coconut creme pies.
Luckily, she only has to deal with 6 months of probation instead of jail. I'm sure it would be too traumatic for her to relive the whole no phone, no lights, no motor cars, not a single luxury thing all over again.
Obviously, the buzz from that Honey Bee episode is where it all began.
Tragic when you think of it really, how she lived her life as a castaway only to cast away her life.
But seriously though, what does it take to rescue this friggin' woman?!?
Once a maroon, always marooned.

Mary Ann caught with weed, yet that crack dealing Alice from The Brady Bunch still roams free. Where's the justice?

I recall an NPR report saying that Bob Denver's arrest on pot charges originated in his effort to protect Wells, the real owner of the pot, or so he thought.

If those banana cream pies Mary Ann was always baking had what I think they had in them, one might surmise that the crew and passengers of the S.S. Minnow had very little motivation to get off that island.

Ray - I guess we should call 1-Adam-12 to handle it.

Mindy - Considering so, you'd think her figure would've been lost as well.

John - haha.

X: - Yes, I recall that report as well. And you're probably right about not having the motivation to leave.

I'd also venture to guess when they weren't listening to news reports on that coconut radio, Iron Butterfly could be heard for miles around.
